Apple Releases iOS 7.1.1 With Even More Bug Fixes
On Tuesday, Apple released iOS 7.1.1 to the public, a move that was expected after many reports confirmed increased traffic from iOS 7.1.1 last week
iOS 7.1.1 is available for all iOS 7-compatible devices, and includes a small number of bug fixes and stability improvements for devices all around.
One of the most notable changes is that it improves the reliability of Touch ID, Apple's flagship fingerprint scanning software that comes with the iPhone 5s. Touch ID has been tagged as unreliable over time, as many sources cite the feature to lose its accuracy
. Apple has been in the works of improving its accuracy and iOS 7.1.1 is the company's first step towards progress.
Other improvements in iOS 7.1.1 include bug fixes to help improve the reliability of the keyboard so that it doesn't freeze up while typing, and a fix for problems that could occur when trying to use Bluetooth devices with VoiceOver enabled.
Those that wish to update will want to head over to the Settings application and visit the Software Update preferences pane. Alternatively, you can plug your device into your computer and launch iTunes to download and install the update. iOS 7.1.1 is NOT jailbreakable
, so if you rely on a jailbreak, stay far away
